Vertis North is a mixed-used development in Quezon City, Metro Manila, Philippines. It is a joint venture project between Ayala Land Inc. (ALI) and the National Housing Authority (NHA). Similar to Makati, it has a mix of developments such as residential developments similar to Legaspi and Salcedo Villages in Makati and open spaces such as Ayala Triangle Garden and Greenbelt Park.


On August 27, 2009, Ayala Land Inc. (ALI) signed a joint venture agreement with the National Housing Authority to develop a 29.1-hectare property as a “priming project of the government and the private sector.” The total project cost is estimated at P22 billion, which includes future development costs and the current value of the property. ALI and NHA will contribute their respective equity share in the joint venture.[2] The NHA is responsible for relocating settlers living in the area.[3]

On July 5, 2012, Ayala Land Inc. (ALI) announced the development of Vertis North. The company initially invested P12 billion for the three-year development of Phase 1 of Vertis North. Phase 1 includes a Kukun Hotel, office buildings for business process outsourcing companies, and Bonifacio High Street-type retail areas in a 7-hectare area.[4]

In October 2015, Bloomberry Resorts Corp. purchased a 15.7-hectare property from the National Housing Authority (NHA) for P1.98 billion.[5] It will be developed into a casino called Solaire Resort North and will feature a hotel tower with up to 550 rooms and a gaming area with up to 200 gaming tables and as many as 3,000 slot machines. [6]

The first phase of the project which includes the Ayala Malls Vertis North shopping mall, the Seda Vertis North hotel, and residential projects was launched in 2017.[3]

Vertis North covers an area of 29 hectares (72 acres)[7] and is bounded by the Epifanio De los Santos Avenue in the west, the North Avenue in the north, Agham Road in the east, and Quezon Avenue in the south.[1] More than half of Vertis North's area is allocated for office use.[8]

The Ayala Malls Vertis North shopping mall is within the area's premise. The 24-storey Seda Vertis North hotel, among the largest in northern Metro Manila with 438 rooms, is also situated in Vertis North.[9] Above the Vertis North mall is the multi-tower Vertis North Corporate Center, where several BPO companies operate.[8]

Residential developments in Vertis North include Avida Vita, Avida Sola, Alveo's High Park, and Alveo's Orean Place.[3]

Vertis North Rain Garden, which upon its completion will sit on 2 hectares (4.9 acres), is partially operational and open to the public since March 2021.


Among the planned buildings to be built within Vertis North include the 43-storey office building One Vertis Plaza[9] and the 33-storey integrated hotel and resort-casino Solaire North.[10]


The ownership of the project is split 72-28 between ALI and NHA respectively. The land in North Triangle was owned by the National Housing Authority (NHA) and the development of Vertis North is a PPP (public private partnership)
